Ferrari anniversary livery for Australian GP revealed

The 2019 Formula 1 season gets under way this weekend in Australia, and it is a special campaign for Ferrari as they will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of the establishment of their very first team. As part of the celebrations, they have released a new livery for the upcoming race in Melbourne.

Ferrari's livery design has caused controversy this season, as they were forced to drop the 'Mission Winnow' sponsor due the phrase being coined by the Philip Morris International, who make Marlboro cigarettes, with the promotion of tobacco now banned within the sport.


Misson Winnow did reveal on Tuesday that the sponsor would be added again after Australia, however.

"We are not about selling or advertising any tobacco or e-cigarette products and we believe Mission Winnow complies with the relevant laws that apply to our activities around the world, including Australia and the State of Victoria," a statement said.

The brand admitted the livery has been changed for Australia, but insisted: "We are here to stay. Mission Winnow will remain the title partner of the Scuderia Ferrari team.

"The changes are currently planned only for Australia."

However, Mission Winnow added: "There may be other surprises throughout the race season."
